JOHANNESBURG, June 20 (Reuters) – South African government
bonds briefly extended gains on Wednesday, pushing yields lower,
after data showed May consumer inflation slowed more than
expected to 5.7 percent year-on-year.
The yield on the 14-year bond fell to 7.985
percent from 8.01 percent prior to release of the data at 0800
